    I have not used my NFC yet and I m not even sure if it works... what do people use it for?

    At BlackBerry World and Jam there were stations setup with NFC tags that you could easily check into.

    The new Music Gateway makes it easier to connect via bluetooth with NFC tech.

    There are a myriad of ways to use NFC, and I imagine more payments will be made that way as well in the near future.

    I have used NFC between my BlackBerry Bold 9900, to transfer data to my friend's BlackBerry Curve 9360, and the process was flawless

    Thank you.

    As Joe and Grim mentioned those are some ways that NFC can be used. NFC can also be used as a key to securely access a building or be used with smart accessories, smart payment terminals, and smart access points.

    Is it right you can use it to add contacts on BBM as well by tapping phones together or have I dreamt that ?

    I still don't get why US carriers haven't used this medium yet. I guess they wanna wait til Apple "creates" so they can feel hip.

    I use NFC to tranfer files (mostly pictures) to my wife's Bold 9900 and vice versa. It's so much quicker than Bluetooth..And I hope to see NFC-technology grow very soon. Wouldn't it be great just to pay your groceries or gasoline with your BlackBerry device??.....
